GMRS Repeater

For users of K7RAP’s GMRS repeater on 462.650 MHz (GMRS 5):

As of 7/21 there is both encode and decode tone of 114.8 Hz

Depending on your radio manufacturer, you may need a privacy tone of 16 or 17, rather than the CTCSS frequency of 114.8 Hz.

See FRS/GMRS privacy codes demystified for a basic rundown assuming zero familiarity with the subject.

No 220 transceiver?

The newer tri-band Baofeng is available for $30. No affiliation, but several club members have used these and received good signal reports.

Thanks for reading.
